    Games Official Esksfans 15th Annual (2019) CFL Pool Thread - With Prizes!

    Hey all,

    We're back again, beginning another CFL season, which of course exists in order to provide scores for the CFL Pool, which coincidentally starts on the very same day. Prizes again will be offered, to the top two finishers!

    Rules

    The pool works as follows: pick the winners of the games, and scores. That's it. For every game, you get:

    * 2 points for picking the winner.
    * a bonus point for getting the exact score for one of the two teams.
    * a total of 3 bonus points if you hit the final score precisely for both teams.

    The pool will run until the end of the Grey Cup game.

    Prizes

    It's a lot of fun, and mostly harmless. The top 2 based on total points will receive 1 item of their choosing from the esksfans.com shop: http://www.esksfans.com/forum/shop.php

    In the event of a points tie for 2nd place, the first tie breaker is "Wins". If still tied, we will have a random draw or flip a coin or have a 3rd party pick a number between 1 and 10 or whatever silly tie-breaking method I decide.

    Access

    To get to the pool from the site's main page, click "Forum" on the green menu bar. Then, on the yellow menu bar, click "CFL Pool". From there, you'll figure it out.

    All the regular season games have now been entered, so predict as many as you want now. I'll be sending out weekly reminders a couple of days before each week's games.

    I see that couchspud and The Messiah have already gotten a head start. Since they're both former champs, they'll be hard to catch. But they will be caught, I guarantee it.

    Good luck!

    Cheers, Glen VB

    Trying a new technique and filled in all my picks for the whole year. Let's see if we can make this fly!

    It's that time of the week (or year, in OK14's case). Season starts the day after tomorrow. Pick away!

    Currently, first-place couchspud holds a zero-point lead over last-place, um, me. But I'm shooting for you, couchspud!

    Week 1 is done! At least one major surprise down the #2 highway, but it didn't fool SKIP12, who not only holds our only perfect record, but also snagged two bonus points! Not to be outdone, 3rd & Long got one wrong but somehow managed four bonus points to tie SKIP12. Looner's in 3rd with a 3-1 record and two bonus points, which seem to be the theme of the week. A whole bunch tied for fourth (SecN, Wilkie, GWN, cmbuk, EsksDieHard1, and E4E).

    BTW, notice that we were all confident about the west's superiority this year...but the west went 1-2 against the east this week. Then again, the western teams in those losing games were the weakling Stamps and greenwhites

    And the Esks almost choked away their game against the East as well. Imagine if the West had gone 0-3 vs. the East? Hopefully, this means the East is showing up to play this year. But it is just week 1, where anything can happen.

    Short week coming up, only three games. But it starts early, the day after tomorrow. Make your picks!

    OK, week 2 is in the books...and we have a new leader! 3rd & Long, who was a game behind SKIP12 (the only perfect record in week 1) but tied with him based on bonus points, went 3-0 this week to take a two point lead. A three-way tie for third another point back, between naf, bone, and Wilkie (sounds like some crazy new animated movie). But there is a pile of people just off the pace, so the leaders best be wary...

    Three strong hometown favourites, one much closer game...on paper. Can any of the road dogs surprise? I'll go on a limb and say two road teams win this week.

    Time to make your picks!

    I see this as a tough week to pick. 2 undefeated teams playing each other. 2 other games where 2 winless teams play each other. With those types of scenarios it's tough to pick road teams.
